chumcloud saidI am looking to start a Wings/McCartney solo tribute band in NYC area with the intention of eventually playing casino’s, fairs/festivals, weddings, and private engagements. I am a very pro drummer and also a full time booking agent for going on 20 years. My office is in NYC but I live in Westchester.I am obviously looking for all the pieces of the puzzle. Most importantly, obviously, is “Paul”. Preferably, I am looking for people who have the following:– are already a fan of the band and know the music– who can practice either in NYC or Westchester once a week. Weeknights at 7 or 8pm for two hours.– who are complete pro’s on their instruments and can handle the nuances of the songs– who think “RAM” is better than any Beatles record (kidding, but it is..)People with full time jobs are preferred. If you are getting on in years (I am 42) and don’t play as much; kids, mortgage, etc, this is where I am at. I want to generate additional income for myself and have fun doing it.There are two Wings Tribute bands that I can tell. One in LA who do the whole “look exactly the same and wear the outfits that Wings wore in ‘Rockshow’, and another from Seattle who don’t have a ‘Linda’ and don’t look like Wings and just play the songs. They both gig plenty at casino’s and such. I am not opposed to the whole “looking the part” concept, but honestly it’s a bit hokey to me. I understand it’s “showbiz”, but I’d be happy if the band looked like themselves and played the songs perfectly.Anyway, lets do this. Where are you, “Paul”?
Sorry, you lost me. It’s not even his best post-Beatles record. So.
Also, I’m nowhere near NYC, I’m below the age of 20, and I’m still learning my bass. So nope.
Hope you participate in the forum!
